and democrats work together. so with your gang of eight, with senator rubio being a part of the hispanic caucus and hispanic conference i believe we'll see immigration reform. jon: senator rubio spoke about that in his reboughtal or response to the president's state of the union. >> with his response, jon, he was successful twofold. first of all the only way we can increase prosperity and reduce poverty is through free enterprise. it is through smaller government and capitalism. so last night rubio not only talked about immigration reform he spoke from the heart dealing with solutions and bringing our nation back together. jon: and well, did he, which cause did he advance? i mean a lot of people were watching this speech in terms of his future prospects as a presidential contender himself but what about the overall policies of things like immigration reform? >> true leadership is speaking from the heart. he has lived it. he has worked in the middle class family. he has worked among immigrants. he is from immigrants. so he lived it and experienced it and that is true leadership where he can brin

you even go forward with some of these ideas. >> rose: the republican message came from marco rubio the senator from florida. here's a sample of that. >> president's in both parties from john f. kennedy to recalled reagan have known our free enterprise economy is the source of our middle class prosperity. but problem, he believes it's the cause of our problems. but the economic downturn happened because our government didn't tax enough, spend enough or control enough. and therefore as you heard tonight, his solution to virtually every problem we face is for washington to tax more, borrow more and spend more. >> rose: i'll talk about the political implications of marco rubio but what do you think of what he said and his presentation and the strength that he seems to be gaining by being a significant republican voice. >> i think it's important he's trying to say we don't have to be an exclusive party, we can be a party that brings other people in. but there was a very very clear ideological divide between what he said and the president said. which is that the president believes and h
to the panel here. i want to play what marco rubio had to say in the gop response prior to the water drink. prior or after. i don't know if anything matters. you take that sip of water and what he said about his personal story. >> this ideal is personal. my parents emigrated for the opportunity to improve their life. they made it to the middle class. my dad as a bartender and my mother as a cashier and maid. i didn't inherit money from them. i live in the same middle class neighborhood i grew up in. i owed over $100,000. a debt i paid off just a few months ago. >> his story is not that mitt romney could tell or touch. chris matthews said rubio said government is not the answer, but talked about medicare for his mother and a student loan he received that perhaps allow him to be the senator that he is today. what do you make of the conflict there? >> i think that senator rubioey performance is fine. i am not hung up on the water incident. >> the issue of the role of government. >> substantively the short coming to answer the question is he didn't do anything in that speech to expand the tent

. >>> the second sidebar story of tomorrow night will be the spot light for a republican rising star marco rubio. he gives the response to the president. is he the long-term answer the gop has been waiting for? let's bring back our gaggle. susan, you know, these responses say they're fraught with peril, but to me there was a no more often choice. it could have been weird had they gone any other direction. >> so is he the barack obama of the republican party? he's young, he helps address that are diversity problem, which is a really serious one. he's acceptable to the tea party folks, he talks in a way that is not scary or doesn't off-put people who are in the middle. so he is a guy with some enormous promise. >> but this is style versus substance? right now the republican party's answers to its problems are we're going to change the face, change some of our phraseology, but we're not changing substance yet? >> we're going to wait. >> one more election before we start changing. >> i think for rubio, he'll be able to deliver a good speech. he's been able to prove that time and again like at the rn
. >>> senator marco rubio will deliver a speech immediately after the president. senator marco rubio will deliver his address in both english and spanish and seen as another effort to attract latino voters. senator marco rubio is routinely mentioned as a possible presidential candidate in 2016. >>> they are holding a watch party for the state of the union address and it is being held in dunn hall at 6:00 p.m. and professors will hold an announcement after the speech. you can watch it right here at 6:00 and at 7:30 we will break down the president's speech and gop response with our political colleagues. >> i just got off the phone with pg&e and they say about 1,000 customers are without power in the redwood heights area in oakland and this power will be out until 8:00. i just got off the phone with a representative and that's what they told us. about 1,000 people are without power and they are aware of the problem and this could be very inn convenient. if you know somebody there, you may want to give them a wakeup call because their alarm clock may not be going off. no major problem
't that great? but it is not going anywhere. >>> republican senator marco rubio responds to president obama. >> the tax increases and the deficit spending you propose will hurt middle class families. it will cost them their raises cost them their benefits, it may even cost some of them jobs. and it will hurt seniors because it does nothing to help save medicare and social security. hardworking middle class americans who don't need us to come up with a plan to grow the government, they need a plan to grow the middle class. >> question, was rubio for the gop? tim? >> he moved in the right direction. i don't think it was a great response. he moved in the right direction because you heard when he was criticizing government he wasn't saying oh it is taking p money from hardworking people and giving it to the p undeserving, he was saying government is keeping you down. government regulations are making it harder for someone to start a new business, you or the person who might hire you. government breeding dependency and keeping the regular person down. i thought rhetoric. >> why was he chosen? >>
. in some ways, senator rubio embodies the american dream. as the child of immigrants, he's uniquely positioned to speak to the aspirations of the middle class. unlike our rather easily distracted president, senator rubio has never had to pivot to jobs. he's kept a laser focus on job creation and the economy ever since he got here. so i've laid out the things the president needs to address if he's interested in working with republicans to get some good things done for the country in the days and months ahead. i sure hope he's listening. mr. president, i yield the floor. the presiding officer: the republican whip. mr. cornyn: mr. president, as president obama gets ready to deliver his state of the union address tonight, i'd like to remind the american people of what he said four years ago during his first speech to a joint session of congress. four years ago president obama said he did not believe in big government. since then he's given us four consecutive trillion-dollar deficits. he's nationalized our health care sector. and he's used federal agencies to impose draconian regulation
is winning this battle for talent, which is i'm glad the president talked about it last night. senator rubio talked about it as well. i think it got the biggest ovation of the night from republicans and democrats. we need to come together and pass immigration reform. >> we heard from some small business people last night via twit tore a large degree, who said the immigration part is great, not so much on the minimum wage part. i wonder how much of an offset that might be to a small business person? >> a lot of things were talked about. it was an hour speech. there was a lot of components to it. i was encouraged when the president talked about they were building the economy. and solving the immigration issue. particularly from president obama and senator rubio, on the high-skilled immigration reform. i view it as a good night. and a hearing in the senate around immigration reformt. and this afternoon we'll hear more from the senators introducing that. we're making good progress. there's a lot of work to be done. immigration has always been a difficult, sensitive issue. it will require broad b
a transatlantic trade agreement. and marco rubio gave the republican response and criticized obama's programs and proposals as more unnecessary deficit spending. joining us for more, head of european g-10 fx bank of america merrill lynch. welcome. >> good morning. >> want to start talking about europe, about cypress where he got back from. first the u.s. dollar, what's happening with the potential fiscal talks. how concerned are you, what does it moon for trading the currency? >> the u.s. dollar has weakened so far this year because of the overall market risk move that we have seen. positive of surprises in the u.s. at the global level. and looking forward, we were bullish on the u.s. dollar because we see a market correction as the u.s. tightens fiscal policy substantially this year. >> how severe of a correction might that -- >> we believe for the rest of the year the euro/dollar will be closer to 1.30 or below, 1.35. >> really? >> also last week we believe in the way there's a ceiling on the strength of the euro warning that a fefbent strengthening -- fervent strengthing will affect inflat
. austerity hasn't worked in europe. why does marco rubio think it would work in america? >> look, what you have to keep in mind is when marco rubio said that. he said that in his response to the president's state of the union right before rand paul was about to give the tea party response to the state of the union. what marco is trying to do here is politically position himself as almost a unifier of the tea party and mainstream conservative fiscal conservatives in the republican party. so, look, the balanced budget amendment is red meat to the tea party. they believe in it because they want fiscal responsibility. i think that was a political and tactical play on his part more than a reasonable or achievable fiscal possibility. >> john? >> bumper sticker politics. it's not serious. it doesn't reflect the realities of government, but it's a popular and powerful contrast the with the democrats because many states have balanced budget amendments and operate just fine. federal government is more complex but all the more reason for president obama to set a clear contrast. if the republicans wan
and you know what he's going to say. host: what do we know senator rubio is going to say? guest: he is a young, great speaker and have been involved in the immigration issue and people will be looking to see how -- how much he'll embrace what president obama says and you know, if he will be willing to go along sm the president is going to talk today that there are places we can find common ground. the question will be will senator rubio be talking about they can find common ground or a step back. host: jonathan strong, he comes from the capitol, how much is republic leadership having fluns on what he has to say? guest: senator rubio has his own political interests at stake and will probably be running for president in 2016. i'm sure he is laying down his mark in those discussions. host: what is the difference between what he will be talking about and rand paul? guest: is this an alternative, is this a rival address and rand paul has said no. no. no. we are in conjunction and on the same team. the thing to watch out for is places where the two speeches don't agree with one another, t
pickings from the political grapevine. the sip of water that won't go away. while senator marco rubio's drink in the republican response in the "state of the union" was up doubtedly awkward, yesterday cnn ran a graphic reading "career ender" over the rubio story with wolf blitzer wondering allowed, "so, can a drink of water make or break a political career?" cnn clarified via twitter, "we are joking. it was a tease." new york democrat congressman charles rangel seemed serious when he said, "most people were embarrassed by his performance." the rnc issued this response -- "if i were senator rubio, i wouldn't too concerned about charles rangel's opinion considering he hasn't seen an ethics violation he didn't like." >>> zombies are getting attention in canada. last year the government in british columbia referenceed threat of zombie attack to encourage residents to put together emergency survival kit. then the heart and stroke association put together zombie class to promote cpr classes. yesterday, zombies came up on the floor of parliament. >> zombies don't recognize orders. the zombie
debt. the response will come from marco rubio of florida. joining us, peter roskam of illinois, chief deputy whip for the republican conference. sir, nice to have you here. >> thank you very much. >> you're from illinois, you know a lot about spending, not that you helped create it. tonight are we going to hear anything about that side of the ledger, the spending, you think? >> you get the joke on illinois spending and it's in a downward spiral. it's a type of world view from an economic point of view that is completely an mating the white house. take illinois spending patterns and extrapolate that onto the u.s. economy, that's where the president is proposing to lead us about $26 trillion in debt. i don't think we're going to hear a lot about how the president can grow the economy through the private sector and why unemployment is still at a nagging 7.9%. i think that's where the action is and what he should be talking about but i don't think that's what we'll be hearing. >> when i was on "squawk box" this morning we entered a lot of democrats. they seem to think his last speech and
. republican response being delivered by florida senator marco rubio. >> super bowl-like speech tonight. tracie potts, thank you. also brian williams and the entire nbc team will have complete coverage of president obama's state of the union and the republican reply as well. stick around for that. >>> many around the world are still stunned this morning by pope benedict's surprise announcement he's giving up the pa papacy. a papal abdication has not happened in six centuries. it's creating shock waves even from the sky. "the guardian" newspaper showing lightning hitting st. peter's basilica. chris jansing is in rome this morning. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, richard. there's a lot of speculation here about what that lightning strike means. i can't give you any inside information but the other big speculation, of course, is who will succeed pope benedict. this is something we have not seen since the middle ages. how do you choose a pope when there's one still living? there's a very different church than we saw even eight years ago, and certainly three decades ago when john pau
senator marco rubio provided a republican response. "obamacare is the reason companies 50 and larger aren't hiring. it's turning fulltime workers into part-time workers" observers say president obama has a limited window of opportunity to get it done. "simplify the tax code, certainty on that and spending that's what the economy needs." following the president's speech, senior white house advisors began a question and answer session via twitter, google-plus and facebook.it's called an "open for questions" marathon--a few of the subject areas--- jobs, energy, guns and immigration.it runs through friday. the ceo of apple was in the crowd as the president delivered his state of the union address. before heading to capitol hill as a guest of the first lady, tim cook was the headliner at the goldman sachs technology and internet conference in san francisco. cook told analysts he's bullish on innovation at apple and apple stores need more space. he also fielded a number of questions about the company's massive $137 billion in cash. cook called the lawsuit by hedge fund manager david einhorn ove

? questions how media responded to marco rubio. some say is this a career-ender for this man? is that going a little too far. >> it had been a long day at work we had already done an 18-minute recording in spanish and my mouth got dry, what can i say. i was happy overall with what we were able to deliver in the speech.

and directed directly at the opposing party tonight the. >> and what about the response from marco rubio? what's the republican line likely to be here? are they similarly going to use this as a way to make their case to the public as a place for avoiding the sequester or not depending on what the the agenda is? >> i think they will. i think what you'll see senator rubio do who, by the way, has a tough job tonight. it's very hard to deliver a speech in the format directly following the president and look at it all on equal term. first, he has to lay out a thoughtful critique as to what the president's plan is. to your point or sequester, tax raise easy, i think you'll see marco rubio lay out a vision for how a long-term spending cut plan will be better for the economy. secondly, he has to be positive. he has to be uplifting. the republican brand has taken a hit over these last spending hikes can it cannot afford to keep being seen as the party of keeping people down, so to speak. and as a result of that, i think you'll see him give a very uplifting, very personal accounting of his rise in ameri
. marco rubio has kind of been the g.o.p. point person did not sound encouraged saying in a statement, quote, if actually proposed the president's bill would be dead on arrival in congress leaving us with unsecured borders and a broken legal immigration system for years to come. and we talk about this, affecting an estimated 11 billion illegal immigrants currently in the country, but the president's plan would open up potential legal status as to spouses and children not yet here. even though there is he' a bill in the works, the administration says the president supports the ongoing bipartisan efforts here in capitol hill to come up with kind of reform measure. back to you guys. >> clayton: more on this, we'll hear more on this, doug luzader, live in d.c. >> thank you, four minutes after the hour and time for head lines. oscar pistorius' family going on camera the first time since the blade runner was charged with murdering his girlfriend. >> its own case, including its own forensic evidence strong strongly refutes premeditated murder. >> and his uncle says he was planning a future w

"because of obamacare, some companies aren't hiring. and in some cases, full-time workers are being let go and replaced by part-time workers." tomorrow, in chicago, the president will address gun violence and, in particular, a shooting that took the life of a 15-year-old girl who had performed with her classmates at his innauguration less than a month ago. it also marks two full months since the school shooting in newtown, connecticut. the carnival cruise crisis will hopefully come to a close today. a third tug boat is called in to pull the crippled carnival ship into mobile, alabama, today. a fire blew out an engine sunday on triumph, stranding more than 4,000 people in the gulf of mexico. the cruise was scheduled to end monday morning. carnival is cancelling 14 triumph cruses and refunding customers. the president of carnival has apologized for poor conditions on board, including heat and sewage problems. r
